PLASTIC: THE SAFETY ASSURANCE OF MOTORCYCLISTS
When we talk about motorcycle accessories, the first things that come to mind are security accessories. You must have at least some idea of the necessary accessories and gear for your motorcycle. Today, we’re going to provide you with details so you have a clear mental picture. This way, you’ll be able to quickly acquire the motorcycling equipment and accessories you need.
Motorcyclists know very well that to drive safely, you need to hit the road having fully completed your driving courses and developed the necessery skills, and after you’ve gotten motorcycling equipment that is internationally recognized. Our first priority is the helmet; a motorcycle helmet is crucial not only for the driver, but for the passenger as well, when travelling with another person.
As for the other vital motorcycle accessories: A motorcycle jacket, pants, gloves, knee guards, back brace, and boots are some of the other motorcycling equipment that should be remembered. Whether as the driver or the passenger, any person getting on the bike must always be in full gear, this should not be neglected under any circumstance.
What materials is the motorcycling equipment made of?
Helmets made of carbon fiber-filled polymer composites are light yet sturdy. But these are only slightly better than those made of ABS plastic. In helmets, material quality is more about comfort than safety. To decrease noise inside the helmet, and for efficient ventilation without sweat or clouding, holes are made in the helmet. Channels and covers are attached. These holes weaken the structure of the surface. So if you want a helmet that has good ventilation and little noise, yet one that’s also thin, light, and sturdy, you must be ready to pay a good amount.
Knee/shin guards: If you’re not using motorcycle pants with knee protection, using knee guards will protect your knees from impact.
Elbow guards: Besides your knees, your elbows take the brunt of the impact in an accident. If you’re not using a motorcycle jacket with elbow protection, using elbow guards will keep your elbows safe.
Back braces: Using back braces will not only keep your insides warm, but it will also protect your back and hip from impact in the event of an accident.
Every one of these equipment has viscoelastic foam on the inside, and ABS or a similar plastic on the outside. Thus, they offer comfort by having the insides take the shape of your body. Also, the visco foam on the inside hardens on impact. You can attach these protective equipment to your jacket or pants.
